Make a difference, be part of the change.  We are delighted to host two back-to-back conferences that are leading the way in challenging diversity and giving voice to those who are often ignored. Hear from keynote speakers, Professor Barry Carpenter, Carrie Grant (British vocal coach and  television presenter) and speakers from both the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Royal College of Speech and Language therapists. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the change.

This conference will cover:
  • The launch of a book about Autism and Girls, written by NAHT's Autism and Girls Forum 
  • An update on the work of the Girls with Autism Forum
  • An insight from the perspective of girls on the autism spectrum 
  • Effective practice emerging in the field

This is a conference not to be missed: its ground-breaking message is a landmark in our understanding of Autism in Girls.
